Environmental Studies Certificate Program

The Environmental Studies Certificate Program provides students and others from all disciplines with the opportunity to gain an additional interdisciplinary qualification in environmental studies. The certificate course runs in parallel to their Master degree; the international, comparative format and the workshops and lectures delivered by environmental researchers from all over the globe make this program the only one of its kind in Germany.

This program opens up new academic and intellectual horizons, new career possibilities, and, in bringing students into dialogue with different disciplines, offers new perspectives on our academic environments. Regular contact with supervisors, excellent teaching, and a high level of internationality provide ideal conditions for learning.

The certificate program is open to all Masters students, Diplom students and those studying Lehramt and towards their Staatsexamen, but also others. The qualification, which is made up of 33 ECTS-credits spread across four semesters, is studied for alongside the main degree subject. It allows students to look beyond the confines of their discipline during their degree course itself, and gives them a broader disciplinary base that is appreciated by employers both inside and outside of academia.

The program is an initiative of the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society and LMU Munich.
